BMW Motorrad and ADAC have recently announced the continuation of their collaboration to offer BMW Ride Training Courses. These courses are designed to help motorcyclists improve their riding skills and enhance their safety on the road. The collaboration started in 2014 and has been renewed for the next three years.
According to BMW Motorrad, more than 2,300 motorcyclists and interested persons completed BMW Ride Safety Training Courses powered by ADAC last year alone. This figure shows the increasing demand for these courses and highlights the importance of improving riders’ skills to enhance their safety on the road.
The BMW motorcycles used in these courses are from different model series, and the courses are designed for riders of different levels of experience. There are courses for beginners, returning riders, and advanced riders, as well as a course specifically designed for the BMW R 18 cruiser motorcycle.
The BMW RIDE FIRST course is aimed at those who do not yet have a motorcycle license but want to experience the motorcycle for the first time without any obligations. The course includes exercises on ergonomics, seating position, balance, starting the engine, and clutch exercises. Participants can ride a number of current BMW motorcycle models, and the course ends with taking their first ride on the motorcycle.
The BMW RIDE AGAIN course is for returning riders and motorcyclists who have not ridden for a long time. The course includes exercises on the correct seating position, where to look, how to steer, safe starting and stopping, and regaining and refining balance. Participants ride BMW motorcycles and receive professional tips from experienced ADAC trainers.
For advanced riders who want to take their riding skills to a new level, there is the BMW RIDE ADVANCED course. This full-day training course includes exercises on refining balance, sitting, looking, and steering correctly, refining lean angle reserves, handling rider assistance systems, and exercises on special dynamic surfaces.
The BMW R 18 Cruiser Training course is designed for those who want to learn how to handle the BMW R 18 cruiser motorcycle safely. The 7.5-hour course covers all the essential content for handling the motorcycle, and the course ends with a two-hour guided ride on the “Big Boxer.”
For those who want to go on a tour straight away, the BMW RIDE OUT is the perfect course. Experienced guides lead the tour, and participants receive professional tips from experienced ADAC trainers. This tour is designed for riders who want to learn while enjoying an eventful day of motorcycling.
Mike Sommer, Head of BMW Motorrad Germany, and ADAC Board Member Dr. Dieter Nirschl have sealed the continuation of this collaboration. BMW Motorrad will provide 149 BMW motorcycles and corresponding rider equipment to be used in 12 ADAC training facilities over the next three years.
The BMW Motorrad and ADAC collaboration is an excellent opportunity for motorcyclists to improve their riding skills and enhance their safety on the road. The increasing demand for these courses shows that riders are becoming more aware of the importance of improving their skills and knowledge to become safer on the road.
The collaboration between BMW Motorrad and ADAC is a valuable initiative that helps motorcyclists improve their riding skills and enhances their safety on the road. The range of courses offered caters to riders of different levels of experience and is designed to help them become better riders. The continuation of this collaboration will undoubtedly benefit the motorcycling community and contribute to a safer road environment.
